Make Exercise Fun

Exercise is very important. If you lead an active life you live a healthy life. I find to exercise to can really help me unwind. I find it can be a real form of escapism.

I try to make some time for physical activity every day, even if it’s just a brisk 15 minute walk I find it still makes a difference to how I feel. Sometimes the best thing to do when you are feeling tired and longing for the sofa is to try and be active as it releases feel-good endorphin’s in our body that can help us to re-energise and think more clearly.

My favourite exercise really depends on my mood. I enjoy going to Zumba classes as I feel it really helps to de-stress. The best thing about Zumba is that it’s a sociable class and you’re working out without even realising it!

However, like a lot of people there are some forms of exercise that I am not so keen on, such as military fitness. I know many people love the push that comes with it, but I don’t find having someone shouting at me to perform high intensity exercises very motivating.

Exercising is very important but I believe its best to take the time to find an activity that you really enjoy. It’s no good setting yourself a mission to endure something that leaves you feeling negative and de-motivated because you will probably never do it again!
